Australian customer communications solution company Salmat is in the planning stages of shrinking 35 data centre sites across the country down to just two. Expected to take up to four years, the project will mean sites in states from Western Australia to Tasmania will be sold and data shifted to the Sydney suburb of St. Leonards and Ravenhall, Victoria.
The large amount of data centre infrastructure is due to business acquisitions and growing data needs over time. While the project is still in planning mode, stage one is due to begin in mid 2011. Salmat CIO, David Hackshall explained that St. Leonards and Ravenhall have additional capacity which can accommodate Salmat’s data needs. However, the company is yet to make a final decision on these sites.
